The curators at The Mark Twain House & Museum will be taking your questions via Facebook Live from 1 to 2 p.m. (1700-1800 UTC), on Wednesday, September 12, as part of the worldwide Ask A Curator day.

Beatrice Fox Auerbach Chief Curator Tracy Brindle, and Assistant Curator Mallory Howard, will field questions asked via the Mark Twain House Facebook Live  session and via Twitter.  You can follow along on the Mark Twain House & Museum’s Facebook page.

The curators collect, preserve and interpret the life and times of writer Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens, who lived in Hartford from 1871 to 1891. Items include rare editions of his works,  family correspondence, and period furniture and clothing.

Samuel Clemens lived in the Nook Farm neighborhood and, with his wife Livy, raised three daughters. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, during his Hartford years.

His neighbors and friends included Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin; Charles Dudley Warner, co author with Twain of The Gilded Age;  and the Rev. Joseph Hopkins Twichell, Twain’s best friend and minister of the Asylum Hill Congregational Church.

Brindle and Howard will be accepting questions all day Wednesday, September 12, on our Twitter feed (@Twainhouse), and directly during the Facebook Live event. Join us!
